    Submission Message
    Hello, here's my new score! I achieved this yesterday (1-31-15) live on Twitch. This Youtube video is the exported stream archive, and Twitch wanted it cut into parts. For convenience's sake, I am linking to the playlist of all 4 parts. The videos join seamlessly. Console power on begins at 12:20 in part one, my TV, console, and controller are shown. I spent about an hour and a half messing up, and the re-set that begins my official game occurs at 1:29:39. This run clears every level. At the end, I demonstrate that I still have control of the character, and show setup and console power off. Thank you all very much for your time and game on!
